How Nakisa helped JBS transition to the cloud

Kiersten Sommers is a former Controller and current IT Director – S4 Functional Lead at JBS. As the world’s second largest food processing company operating in over 20 countries and with a leasing portfolio of 12,000+ contracts consisting of real estate, transportation vehicles, and manufacturing equipment, using static on-premises solutions for managing all the leases while staying compliant globally was proving to be a challenge.

After reflecting on their business needs, Nakisa Lease Administration emerged as the clear front-runner.

Cloud migration in 6 easy steps

Once you and your organization are ready to move to the cloud, our team of experts will begin your cloud journey in a few simple steps:

  1. Your on-premises system will be set to read-only mode as application data will be automatically exported to a cloud staging environment
  2. In the cloud staging environment, our experts will prepare your desired system integrations
  3. Your administrators and users will gain access to this cloud-staged area to validate the data and the system
  4. Once greenlit by your end-users, a cloud production instance (with the necessary integrations) will be created
  5. Your administrators and users will get another chance to test this production environment; once completed, a reconciliation report for your audit purposes will be generated
  6. Your migration to the cloud can be completed in less than 30 days!

“Our solution recognizes the divergences between the two reporting standards – IFRS 16 and ASC 842 – and makes it easy to manage global lease portfolio events with ease. As an end-user, you won’t have to think twice about handling asset impairment and abandonment scenarios uniquely – the system will do it for you!”
